Belle wins on de­but

The New Zealand Herald - - Super Sport / Racing -

Three-year-old filly Bur­gundy Belle has been ear­marked for a pos­si­ble tilt at black-type after her im­pres­sive de­but vic­tory in the Nu­look Alu­minium Maiden (1100m) at Pukekura Race­way yes­ter­day. The daugh­ter of Bur­gundy jumped away well from bar­rier two un­der in-form hoop Shafiq Ru­sof. She won by five and a half lengths. “She was very im­pres­sive and it’s re­ally good to get a win for John (Galvin) and the For­tuna team,” rac­ing man­ager Libby Richards said. A tilt at the Gr.3 Mon­go­lian Khan Tro­phy (1200m) at Eller­slie next month, a race that For­tuna won with Melody Belle ear­lier this year, is one pos­si­bil­ity.
